than late.” That doesn’t apply to bill payments ; ) Last night I dreamed I was playing the heroine in a show that required costume changes. The director had not given me the items and showtime was that evening. So I scrambled through my closet to find appropriate costuming. When I went down to the rehearsal hall, my son who was the music director, was teaching this BEAUTIFUL song to a huge choir. It sounded great, they were excited to sing it…but it had tons of lyrics, which they were reading from huge hymnals. I had to break the news that though the song was awesome, with 30 minutes left to curtain, it was too late to memorize the lyrics and present it well to an audience. Dismayed, he told the choir to, “take five,” and the song was cut. This dream was a gentle warning to get to getting because LATE means doing something or taking place after the expected, proper, or usual time.
love the sentiment, and for many things it is true, but not all. I was a top track athlete in High School, but it’s too late now for me to run in the Olympics. Maybe the Senior Olympics, LOL! Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us,“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” In Hebrew season or zeman means appointed or definite time, and purpose is the word chephets which means delight, pleasure or desire. God has timing associated with the desires He’s placed within us. We can be early, and we can also be late. Paul urged us to walk in in wisdom, redeem the time, and make the most of every opportunity. (Eph. 5:16) What time is it for you?
